Headless, the spin-off of Found, is now available on DVD and Blu-ray at the Forbidden Films Store and Bandit Motion Pictures Store!

In this “lost slasher film from 1978,” a masked killer wages an unrelenting spree of murder, cannibalism, and necrophilia. But when his tortured past comes back to haunt him, he plunges to even greater depths of madness and depravity, consuming the lives of a young woman and those she holds dear.

Headless, produced by Forbidden Films and Gentleman Monster Productions after a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, is a spin-off from the award-winning Found. If you’ve seen Found, you’ll remember Headless is a real nasty slasher movie that our young hero, Marty, watches with a friend late one night. You only see about 10 or 15 minutes of Headless in Found, but it makes a dramatic impact on the entire film (and even got Found banned in Australia!) Now this notorious sequence of Found is its own, stand-alone feature film — a love letter to gorehounds, retro-horror enthusiasts, and fans of exploitation cinema.

Arthur Cullipher, special effects supervisor and associate producer on Found, is the director of Headless. Shane Beasley has reprised his role as the “Headless” Killer, and Leya Taylor has returned to frame the bloodshed as director of photography. Nathan Erdel and Kara Erdel came aboard for the mayhem, fresh off a year-long comprehensive film making course under the guidance of Robby Benson at Indiana University. Nathan penned the screenplay and Kara has co-produced Headless with Found director Scott Schirmer.

‘Headless’ World Premiere Weekend: February 28th & March 1st!

‘Headless’ World Premiere February 28th!

The ten-minute piece of footage so controversial it got Found banned in Australia is now a feature film. Due to overwhelming demand by fans of the original movie, Forbidden Films – the creative team behind Found – is collaborating with Gentleman Monster Productions to bring to life the complete, bloody story of Headless. The film makes its world premiere at Culture Shock in Indianapolis on Saturday, February 28th, 2015. An encore screening will be held at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington, Indiana, on Sunday, March 1st, at 7pm.

Found, the DIY horror darling that debuted on the festival circuit in 2012, made its mark on the indie scene as a boyhood tale with a bent toward the macabre. Based on the novel by Todd Rigney, Found built a blood-soaked masterpiece on a shoestring budget of just $8,000, going on to win 15 Best Feature awards, as well as numerous other awards for acting, directing, and cinematography. Fans of Found will remember Headless as the nasty little peek into a slasher movie that horrified two young friends with its amped-up blood and guts, its parade of topless women, and its iconic, machete-wielding villain. The feature-length version of this intense, gore-filled fantasy brings the gruesome and the psychedelic together in one gorgeous, grotesque, ultra-hardcore horror party.

Synopsis: The body count climbs as a skull-faced killer battles his inner demons in this retro-slasher epic.

Status:  Headless makes its world premiere at Culture Shock, presented by Days of the Dead, at the Wyndham Indianapolis West, on Saturday, February 28th, 2015, at 9pm! An encore screening will take place at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater in Bloomington, Indiana, on Sunday, March 1st, 2015, at 7pm. Cast and crew will be in attendance for audience Q&A at both screenings.  (Updated 2/10/15)
